Cost of Living Adjustment

Moments ago, the Office of Manpower and Budget (OMB) released the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for 2012. The CPI increased 1.7 percent in 2012. As a result, Social Security recipients, military and federal retirees will be authorized a 1.7 Cost-of-Living Allowance (COLA) adjustment increase effective December 1, 2012. This increase will be reflected in their January 1, 2013, checks.
